I enjoy festivals a lot. The various foods, drinks and personalities to encounter are always a delight. This assignment was fun and after watching one of the sources get a bit squeamish after I asked a particular question, I became even more intrigued about this festival. I don't like to start trouble, but I do like to snoop out a fact that seemed hidden away. It was nothing major, but it was the highlight of the assignment.
After gathering all the information I could before I had to meet my deadline, I headed to a nearby Starbucks for WiFi and somehow found myself briefly hanging out with a musician who calls himself Poppa John (a.k.a Poppa Razzi when he has his camera). He talked to me about other events going on in the area and what shops I should check out, then he introduced me to a native of Red Bank whose family had been here for some generations. That guy, whose names escapes right now, gave me a flip-side to the event he refused to attend. All in all, It was a nice experience.
